my summer mantle

White Wednesday

 my tastes in decor are changing...
i'm loving the cleaness of white!


and leaving behind too much busyness.
love the calm!

 the fluted design with IRONSTONE symbols on the bottom is delightful
 and both are yard sale finds.



...blessedness!

I'm loving the whites too. It's hard to make the transition however, after years of loving color! That's where I'm at these days. I have a decorating identity crisis! Your post is lovely. I'm your linky neighbor at WW. Hope you stop by and say 'hi.'

There must be something in the air because I am feeling the same way. STUFF has gone and in it's place ...less is more and WHITE is good!

I agree! Something is in the water. After years of wanting to have a ton of stuff, I just want it all to be gone, gone, gone! Love you beautiful ironstone, it's really lovely.

I think when there is less, you notice each piece more. I love your collection of pitchers!

I am new to your blog and have become a follower. I love your small ironstone pitchers. I have just started collecting ironstone myself. It is truly lovely:o)

Hi Esther! What a beautiful summery mantle! I adore seeing white ironware - especially all lined up like that. :) Nice job!

Hi Esther! I'm Becky and I popped over from WW and love your whites! I have fallen for them, too, and am in the process of incorporating more into my home decor! What fun! A fave if mine is vintage ironstone!!
Have a joyful Friday!
I'll be back again soon!

Your white decor is lovely, you are so right about white being very calming, I think that is why I am continually drawn to it.
